The loons on our bay of the lake (Lower Bottle) are starting over after their nest was raided earlier this month.

On June 8, I saw them nesting, again eschewing the manmade platform they apparently don't like. They set up nesting quarters by the lake in tall grass - smack dab under a bald eagle's nest.


When we heard the donnybrook June 10, we knew the nest had been plundered, as it had been last year.
